Hostler Wood, Worcestershire - About 4 acres, £52,000

Hostler Wood

Hostler Wood has many appealing features; from the grassy rides and open glades that run along its flank, the well maintained level access and the delightful views across open pasture from its western boundary. It is the combination of grassland and insect rich clearings amongst mature birch, ash and hawthorn in this wood that creates real diversity of bird life, attracted by the seclusion and abundance of food.

Areas of thick fir provide further diversity of habitat where deer spend the days browsing this rich environment; roaming uninterrupted throughout the areas of privately owned woodland that border Hostler Wood.

Much in evidence at the wood is the technique used to reclaim marshy land by digging ditches to drain the ground and raise the levels. This process was originally carried out some time ago in preparation for the new planting here but the gentle undulations in the ground are still discernible today and the success of this method is now evident by the dry ground at Hostler Wood.

Hostler Wood is easy to reach and well connected to the road network, with easy access to Redditch, Bromsgrove and the motorway network. It is this geographical location that gives the wood its name. Redditch grew up as a result of its important location along the medieval trade routes east / west between Warwick and Kidderminster and the north / south route from Staffordshire to Evesham. Along these routes numerous stablemen or hostlers were called up to service this equestrian traffic. Nowadays the wood can be accessed by car and is located at he end of a long private lane and then a woodland track that passes through other areas of attractive woodland. It is this distance from public roads that gives a true sense of seclusion and tranquillity for those in search of the unique peace that makes woodland of this type such an enchanting place.

These particulars and plans were prepared by local manager Daniel Sharp.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
